Enjoy the Ride

I thought this was a nice way to start the drive home the other day. Not a bad view, huh?

"N" is for New Jersey

As I said in a previous post my family and I spend the holiday weekend at a cabin in Gatlinburg. You can imagine that watching TV can only keep you entertained for so long, so I decided to take "Scattergories" for everyone to enjoy playing while we were there. I love board games, so I was really excited when everyone got as into it as I was.

During one of the rounds the letter was "N" and the catergory was a "U.S. City." I was very confident when I answered with "New Jersey." Could have said Nashville, Northport, New York, Natchez...the list could go on and on. But no, I said New Jersey. Duh, New Jersey is a state, not a city. Naturally, I felt like an idiot when I read my answer and everyone started to laugh. Oops!

Move ahead a day to Friday morning, shopping at the outlets with Jeremy, mom, and Molly. I see a cute pair of shoes that are regularly $60, but are marked at 40% off. I look at Jeremy and say, "What would that be, like 40 DOLLARS off?" I know good and well that 40% and $40 are two very different things. I guess I was having a blonde moment. Anyway, Jeremy looks me in the eye and says, "Marissa, only in the CITY of New Jersey is $40 the same as 40%."

Hilarious, right?

A Very Auburn Christmas

I decorated my fabulous Auburn Christmas tree at work last week. See how cute it is?

WAR EAGLE! Six is better than Saban!

A Better Blogger

So, I've been told that the blogging world misses me. (Thanks for noticing Melissa P!) I will try and do better about keeping up with posting. I do have pictures to share from Thanksgiving, but my dear, sweet sister hasn't emailed them to me yet. I will share as soon as I have them.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. My family did things a little different this year. We rented a cabin in Gatlinburg and spent the holiday weekend there. It was really great! Of course I ate way too much, but it was worth it. Pictures to come soon!! :)

Here Ya Go...

It's been a while since I've posted anything, so I thought I'd give you a laugh for the day....

I was walking up the stairs at work this morning, caught my toe on the top step, lost my shoe, fell forward and Bam! landed hard on my knee and scraped up my shin. It was quite graceful. Several people came out into the hall to make sure I was ok. I am ok, aside from my embarrassment and bruised knee.

What a great way to start off the week!

Happy Halloween!

I have a confession to make: I don't really like Halloween. No, I'm not one of those people that is "against" it and thinks it the devil's holiday or anything. I do think that kids dressed up are so cute and I will definitely dress my kids up and take them trick-or-treating one day. I've just never really been into Halloween. I'm much more of a "Fall Festival" kind of girl! Even as a child I was almost always too much of a scaredy-cat to actually go trick-or-treating. I can really only remember 3 costumes that I had as a kid: a clown (seen here!), a hobo, and a princess. Super creative, huh? Thanks to mom for always making us really cute costumes. Seriously, how cute is my sister in this picture!?
Every year at work we all dress up and bring snacks to work for a little Halloween party of sorts. I am so not creative when it comes to costume ideas and it always comes down to the last minute. This year I dressed up as a rag doll. Honestly, I don't think most people realized what I was supposed to be, but at least I tried. I think I just looked like a random girl in a weird dress with pig tails in my hair. You can't see the whole outfit in this picture. I had a cute little white sash around my waist and white tights and little black ballet flats. I thought it was cute - what do you think?
